Evidence to Impact (formerly DECIPHer Impact) is a not for profit company which maximises the translation and impact of evidence-based public health research. We do this by developing innovative products and services.
We deliver the ASSIST smoking prevention programme in schools across the UK. Each year in England, an estimated 200,000 children and young people start smoking; and most adult smokers say they started smoking regularly before they turned 18. If implemented throughout the UK, it is estimated that the ASSIST programme could prevent 20,000 young people taking up smoking each year.
We have been working with Evidence to Impact on an extension of the ASSIST model in UK and on a proposal to translate ASSIST to lower and middle income countries. Working with Sally is a real pleasure. She is highly approachable and pragmatic, and provides great advice from her wealth of experience on ASSIST.

Thanks for all your effort to make the ASSIST training so enjoyable.
